Book Cover

Posted in Personal by Will on Wednesday, June 24th, 2009 ~ 11am

Since I’m unemployed now I am taking on some freelance work, and I am working quickly so that I comply with the requirements for unemployment insurance (which permits a bit of sporadic work when one is between full-time jobs).

I got a gig to do another book cover from an author I’ve worked with before, and I’m pleased with the current draft, previewed below.

And to get to this draft only took 2 hours! (Please don’t say “it looks it”.)

Elements are a stock art photo purchased from iStock, a Seed of Life icon which works with the content of the book, a 1970s-esque futuristic font, and, cleverly, another font that is currently used on PDAs and some cell phones (clever because it subtly ties in to the technology theme of the book). There’s also some Helvetica. I was also asked to create the synopsis and select the critical praise for the back cover, which I am still working on but is basically an edit of some parts of the original book proposal.
